Preventing Web Page Browser Cache
If you would
like to prevent web browsers from placing a copy of your web page within
your visitor's cache file, this web site design tip is for you.
Meta tags are used to give detailed instructions in regard to a web page
to the Search Engines and browsers.
When visiting a web site, a browser will cache or make a copy of the web
page for faster viewing the next visit. This will prevent your regular visitors
from seeing your new content unless they manually reload their browser.
To prevent this problem, add the following code between the <HEAD>
and </HEAD> tags of your HTML.
If you update
your web page with important information on a regular basis, consider using
the no cache meta tag to ensure your regular visitors will view your updated
web page and not one within their cache file.
